We were due to launch prior to the pandemic, however have since put all plans to launch on hold to focus on supporting the wellbeing of NHS frontline staff through this crisis.
Rather than focussing on private/non-NHS clients, we are pouring our days, nights, money, time and efforts into doing what we can to help NHS front line staff for free. It’s entirely self-funded, we are fully independent and are building this initiative from the ground up.
During this time of uncertainty and strain, our NHS frontline medical staff are facing huge challenges – including maintaining their own wellbeing and mental health. We want to do all we can to support them through this turbulent time with the provision of free therapy to those who need it.
The task our nurses and doctors face is daunting on every front, but it’s critical to their health, their patients’ lives and our country that their wellbeing is looked after.
Nurses and doctors often have very few people to speak to – they don’t want to worry their friends and family, or burden their colleagues who are overwhelmed by their own emotions.
We see therapy as crucial support to help in this once in a lifetime pandemic and we are doing our best to help through the creation of this initiative. The idea for Heather Wellbeing is to help people improve their wellbeing. Helping the NHS aligns with this mission.
Moreover, we also hope to more generally help people see the importance of how critical strong mental health and wellbeing support is to those is difficult roles – NHS, police, army, firefighters. All of these services do an incredible job and sadly suffer disproportionately with PTSD to the rest of the population in the interest of serving the public.
The work we are doing is extremely tiring, challenging, stressful and expensive but we believe it is more than worth it. We hope you join and support us in our mission.
